Atletico Madrid 2-0 Getafe

Fernando Torres
Fernando Torres, on loan from AC Milan, has now scored four goals in all competitions since his Atletico return

Fernando Torres scored his first La Liga goal in eight years as Atletico Madrid beat Getafe.

The striker, who had failed to score in his first nine league games since his return, headed home Koke's free-kick within three minutes.

And just before half-time Tiago headed home second from close range.

Torres was Atletico's top scorer in each of his last five campaigns in Spain before his 2007 move to Liverpool at the age of 23.

The result takes Atletico back to within a point of third-placed Valencia, while Getafe remain 13th.

However the defending champions, who are in the Champions League quarter-finals, are still six points off leaders Barcelona, who host Real Madrid on Sunday (20:00 GMT).
